Charlton vs Blackburn Match Preview
Charlton recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Nottingham Forest. The guests scored an early goal, and held for the lead desperately till the very end.
The team had employed some rough tactics in search for the win. They were forced to do so, as this transpired to be only their third win in the last 21 match-ups.
In the meantime, Blackburn recorded a 3-0 win at home over Hull the prior game week. It was a closely-contested affair, in spite of what the scorecard indicates.
The match remained completely goalless till the 74th minute, before the hosts fired in three unanswered goals in row, in the span of just six minutes.
The game showcased the competitive spirit of Blackburn, as well as their ability to cash in on their momentum once they see even a small opening for a win.
Charlton vs Blackburn Prediction
Both teams come from either half of the league table. Blackburn are just six points and two spots away from a place in the playoff zone, while their counterparts are just two spots and six points away from the relegation zone.
Moreover, Charlton were winless in 18 of their last 21 overall fixtures, and in 8 of their previous ten in front of the home crowd. Also, one of their total three wins since October, had come against the dead-last placed Barnsley.
On the other hand, Blackburn were unbeaten in four of their prior five overall fixtures, and had won three of those. They had also scored two or more goals in three of those games, and the only loss in the period had come against Fulham, a major contender to get promoted.
Taking into account these observations, count on the guests Blackburn to avoid a loss at the least this weekend. However, do note that Charlton had won the reverse fixture, that too on the road, and they are on a two-game winning run against this opponent as well. On top of that, the team also has the home advantage.
In addition, Charlton are also actively trying to avoid relegation, and only once have they failed to find the back of the net against this opponent at this venue, since 2002. Considering these stats, the other top pick is surely going to be the BTTS bet.
